Would you like a super healthy, super tasty dinner that takes about fifteen minutes to whip up and leaves you feeling all zingy and pumped full of fresh springyness, well here you go, you are welcome.
This is enough for a generous dinner for two, and here's a little tip I learnt on the telly, smash the lettuce into your kitchen bench with the core facing down so its gets the brunt of the smash, then twist out the core and it makes it really easy to pick apart that lovely little often overlooked iceberg and make the cute little lettuce cups to pop your filling into.
...san choy bau
1 tbsp vege oil
500g chicken mince
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 red chillis, sliced
1 red onion, diced
1 tbsp fish sauce
pinch of sugar
3 kaffir lime leaves, spines removed sliced thinly
big handful picked mint leaves
big handful picked coriander leaves
an iceberg lettuce
Heat the oil in a wok or frypan until hot, add the chicken mince and stir till it starts to change colour then add in the garlic, onion and chillis, stir fry for a couple of minutes then add in the fish sauce, lime leaves, herbs and sugar, stir for another couple of minutes then finish it off with a big squeeze of lime juice. Serve wrapped in iceberg lettuce leaves, its nice with a little dollop of hoisin but not essential, just if its in the fridge.
